Street Yoga builds capacity in youth through yoga and mindfulness to overcome suffering and cope with trauma.
We accomplish this in two ways:
Offering trauma-informed yoga and mindfulness classes at organizations that serve youth who have experienced Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs).
Equipping professionals who work with youth with trauma-sensitive tools for integrating yoga and mindfulness into their work.
We envision a world where everyone has access to yoga. Youth, families and their caregivers will employ tools learned from yoga, mindful breathing and compassionate communication, to grow stronger, heal from past traumas, and create for themselves a life that is inspired, safe and joyful.
